Hestan Team

The Hestan Team has reinvented the restaurant kitchen with inventive and insightful design – which has already earned three Kitchen Innovations awards for our French top, modular broiler system and salamander, and two Excellence in Design Awards for our French top and modular salamander system. Our group brings together more than 200 years’ experience in the commercial kitchen. Over that time, we talked to countless chefs and kitchen design consultants – and more importantly, listened to them. The result is a thoroughly purpose-built kitchen that not only lives up to culinary passion, but also stands up to daily abuse.

Headquartered in the heart of Southern California in an over 190,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that includes a showroom, test kitchen and innovation lab. We continue to collaborate with innovative chefs like Thomas Keller to create products that not only keep pace with culinary evolution, but stay ahead of it.

After reinventing the commercial kitchen, our engineers set their sights on the backyard. Grills. Refrigeration. Storage. Hestan Outdoor perfects the patio with heavy-duty performance and thoughtful design – including the easy-lifting Horizon Hood™, motion-activated Stadium Lights™, precision Trellis Burner™ system and the most powerful infrared rotisserie burner available.

In addition to our flagship Hestan Outdoor kitchen, Aspire by Hestan delivers a full lineup of pure outdoor performance. Aspire grills are made from category-defying, high-grade steel and dialed in with precision power. And every Hestan grill is built in the USA to stand up to mother nature.
